The Ticket by Fred Shackelford (Book Review #780)


The ticket is a mystery/suspense story about Channing Baxter, a gambler and philanderer. He happens to win the Mega Million lottery. Since he is unhappily married to Susan and wants to give her nothing out of the win, he schemes the funds and has his friend claim it and give it back when he is divorced. When he returns home, Susan is gone, and so is the ticket.

The book dwells on such high drama, intensity, and suspense, causing the reader not to put the book down. Channing’s character was created so wisely, but Susan was the best. In my opinion, her personality really elevated the storyline.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

$240 million dollars is a lot of money, and the time ticking causing the ticket to expire really induced a lot of pressure and excitement to the tale. The pace was steady, and the literature was written well.

There was an unpredictability cause of an event with the storytelling, and I enjoyed the payback. It was very entertaining, and I found the scenes funny at times.

I recommend this book to people who like to read mystery fictional stories.
